Default Beersmith - Multiple Threat Detection - AVG

For the last few days the Beersmith websites have been blocked by AVG Internet Security on my system with the AVG Alert message "Multiple Threat Detection". For the Beersmith program AVG LinkScanner blocks the site and puts up the message "Threat was blocked!"

AVG normally doesn't block sites in error so I am wondering if there is a problem. Anyone else having Beersmith site problems?

Default Same Here

Having the same problem here. The recipe site is working, but when I tried the "Contact Us" button it takes me to a contact page on his main site and AVG did not like that.

Default emailed Brad (BeerSmith)

Brad (Dr Smith) has scanned everything on his end. AVG is apparently giving a false positive. Changed AV programs and all is well.



Cheers Ladies and Gents, Robust Porter to brew tomorrow!

There was a very recent upgrade to Internet Security 2012 and it has all the appearances of a false positive so I reported it to AVG.

I believe it is a false positive. I even manually checked several pages to see if any malicious scripts were there, but there are none.

Here is a virus scan of the site from yesterday:

I've submitted a false positive report to AVG. Recommend you do the same - as the more they get the quicker they will correct it!

I'm getting a no data received from Chrome when trying to load your site. Also, the AVG threat block alert as well. Can you tell us how to report a false positive? It's not readily apparent.

You can also try using virus@avg.com.

There are more details at http://forums.avg.com/ww-en/avg-foru...ct=show&id=395...which doesn't work as a link but works fine if cut and paste.
